Ask Your Boss To Leave Work Early. These Miami Roads Will Be Closed For The Democratic Debates

The Adrienne Arsht Center will host two nights of Democratic debates in Miami on Wednesday and Thursday.

While the Democratic presidential candidates prepare to debate in downtown Miami, you might want to hit the road early to make it home in time to watch it on TV.

The first Democratic debates ahead of the 2020 presidential election are 9 to 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at the Adrienne Arsht Center. While it’s not clear which of the 20 Democratic candidates will make the biggest impression on voters, one thing is guaranteed: traffic.

Miami police will close Biscayne Boulevard between Northeast 13th and 14th streets from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Wednesday and again on Thursday. All traffic headed north or south will be detoured.
